Betting

Forecast

Gold Town (10/3), Qaaraat (4/1), Embour (5/1), Headway (7/1), Spoof (8/1), Admiral Spice (10/1), Tony Soprano (12/1), Jim Rockford (14/1), Motown Mick (16/1), Mysaan (20/1), Owen The Law (25/1)

Verdict

EMBOUR can count Listed winner Cake among a host of winning relatives and Ryan Moore’s presence in the saddle suggests the former is preferred to Motown Mick. Qaaraat is a 200,000gns purchase and Mysaan hails from last year’s winning yard. The Godolphin colt Gold Town is another to keep a close eye on in the betting while both Headway and Spoof represent yards in good form. Admiral Spice is speedily-bred while Jim Rockford and Tony Soprano will be other members of the cast seeking a starring role.
